    The Bears have reached agreement on a one-year contract with tight end Dante Rosario, the club said on Thursday.

    The 29-year-old Rosario played in 15 games for the Bears in 2013, making three starts and catching one pass for 13 yards. He also notched five special teams tackles.

    Rosario (6-3, 242) has made 30 starts since entering the NFL in 2007, catching 100 passes for 1,119 yards and eight TDs. In addition to Chicago, he has appeared in regular season games for Carolina (2007-2010), Miami (2011), Denver (2011) and San Diego (2012).

    looks like were keeping the offense status quo. I was hoping we would draft a TE, maybe we will take a surprise WR early. ....... looking more and more like an all Defense draft, guess we need it but would still like to have an upgrade or two on offense. Wonder if they think they will lose McCown and want to save an offense pick for a QB. If Carr slips past Minnesota we may be able to trade down if somebody gets nervous, or screw Minnesota by taking him so they have to go with Ponder again. Guess thats one way of getting 2 wins. LOL. just kidding.

    Maybe he'll catch another pass this year. He could end up with 26 yards for his Bears career if he does. It could happen.

    I can understand somewhat no drafting a center or even perhaps a wideout at the slot. But I'll be disappointed if they don't at least take a late round flyer on a TE. Doubtful if they'll get a FA TE.

    We definitely need a second TE and now they decide to give him a new contract? The guy that caught just one pass for 13 yards? Seriously?

    C'mon man!!

    We're just seeing the consequences being played out, from the Jerry Angelo years of mediocre talent acquisition. The team doesn't have the luxury of spending draft picks on these positions at the moment, due to the fact we're filling MAJOR holes that have to be filled immediately to even be competitive this year. Emery hit the ground running, by upgrading the offense (beginning with the Brandon Marshall acquisition). But the defense is still a shambles. Nobody was in place to step into the shoes of older players like Urlacher or Peppers - and the surrounding talent was often mediocre at best. Angelo also had more outright busts than what a good team should have (everybody has some busts, but we seemed to have more than our share).

    So now, even though we would love to draft a stud TE, or bring in a high-quality QB youngster for Trestman to begin spinning up to eventually replace Jay Cutler - it's just not possible. Oh, we could get a lower-tier talent in the late rounds of the draft for one or more of these positions, but don't expect anyone of true talent to be picked up, when we still need the high-powered picks to go to plugging holes on defense now.

    And until we DO fix our defense, I don't see us moving past Green Bay in the division. It's just full-blown "damage control" right now, as Emery tries to fix the Jerry Angelo mess. On a side note, I still wonder a bit about how Lovie Smith would have done if he had been given better players to work with. I can blame Lovie for the coaching mistakes, but it wasn't all on him, here in Chicago. I think having a poor GM is a cancer to a team. I dearly hope Emery can show he truly has the gears now, to draft quality defensive players, and that the Shea pick was an aberration.

    I think this coming year we will be the most balanced team in our division, its time for Jay to put his big boy pants on and curb stomp green bay

    We all know that Lovie knows absolutely nothing regarding the "O" side. He wouldn't know a decent TE if he was blocked by one. Having said that about the Lovie/Angelo disaster I'd like to add that I thought Rosario did a pretty decent job blocking and was brought in for just that purpose. I have no problem with Emery bringing him back and I see Emery picking up another TE either in FA or the draft to add depth in case Bennett gets hurt. I'd lean towards FA for that addition but I don't know if there are any decent pass catching TE's that would fall to the Bears in the draft.
